The brain is among our body’s most essential components. It regulates the manner in which we believe and act. Our whole being is dictated by its capacities.

All our conduct is shaped by its growth. Understanding its composition and nature will guide us to use its functions intelligently.

According to her, children should be taught how to think rather than what to think. You need to understand the brain capacity and skills of your child as parents. Optimizing our brain energy is more than just memory; we need to be able to make full use of it and maximize the five brain abilities of our brain – attention, visualization, critical thinking, memory, and rate of processing.

MathBrain is the ability to solve problems using the 5 brain abilities with math principles. With MathBrain, a child would be able to explore all 5 of their brain abilities in applying math principles to solve problems.

A child would be able to:

- gather accurate information from a math problem (Attention),
- understand the meaningful relationship between numerical symbols and words (Visualisation),
- figure out the different ways of solving the problem (Logical Thinking),
- apply appropriate methods or formulae to solve the problem (Memory), and
- derive the answer quickly and accurately (Processing Speed).

We have red balls in 1 basket and white balls in another basket.

We want to find out how many red balls and white balls there are.

We want to find out how many red balls and white balls there are.

2 equations:

- If we take 1 red ball and 1 white ball out from the baskets each time, eventually, red ball basket will be empty, and there are 50 white balls left in the other basket.
- If we take 1 red ball and 3 white balls out from the baskets each time, eventually, white ball basket will be empty, and there are 50 red balls left in the other basket.

Can you figure out the number of red and white balls?

(Do not use algebra as this is meant for primary school children)

Is this a math question?

Can you use your memory or any formula to find the answer to this question?

What brain abilities are needed to solve this question?

How many times did your brain “process” to:

- Gather accurate information?
- Understand the relationship between the numbers in the equations?
- Try to figure out various ways to find the answer?
- Try to apply appropriate formulae to find the answer?

Did your brain:

- “Explore possible ways to find the answer?”
- “Test if the possible answer is correct?” and
- “Repeat with the possible ways and Test it again to see if you can find the answer?”

MathBrain abilities would be in position to be confident to process and solve such a question as shown above.

The best education for our children needs to be interactive and experiential. Math Monkey MathBrain curriculum aim to make them wise and well rounded, cognitively equipped to be future-ready while building their intelligence.

The five brain abilities which enhance math learning include:

1. Attention

2. Visualization

3. Logical Reasoning

4. Memory

5. Processing Speed

Play is crucial to the wellness of every child’s brain. The related hormones naturally boost brain cells development, and makes children feel happy.
The happiness feeling promote development of 5 brain abilities, raising curiosities makes children learn irregardless how hard it is. Excitement will lead to confidence that extend their enthusiasm and interest further.
